Joining Gurtu here are a handful of trumpeters who, in their own way, evoke the adventurous spirit of Cherry's improvisation, including Italian trumpeter Paolo Fresu, Norway's Nils Petter Molvær, German multi-talent Matthias Schriefl, Lebanese quarter-tone trumpeter Ibrahim Maalouf, and Turkey's Hasan Gözetlik. Spellbound is an engaging, stylistically varied album that truly evokes the magic of Cherry's music.
